[Tupac Shakur graffiti courtesy Wikimedia Commons]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: Last night I was reminiscing to some friends of mine how when I was growing up (and perhaps more to the point WHERE I was growing up) you couldn't just go to the store to buy rap albums, and since there were no websites let alone anything called Amazon (you'd barely even recognize what we called "the internet" in my teens - it was 100% text based) you couldn't order it online.

In many respects I regret that I ever did in the first place, but it still behooves me to wrap this up.

Something I never expected happened last week - a man who lost the popular vote won the electoral college. That's not unprecedented in U.S. history - in fact it happened as recently as 16 years ago. The difference between then and now is that I was not left nearly so dissatisfied by the result. I didn't agree with the platform or policies of George W. Bush, but I wasn't filled with this overwhelming sense of dread...
